Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has opened a second consultation in the space of a week for a new Cycle Superhighway, the latest one providing a link from Greenwich to Tower Bridge.
The planned route of Cycle Superhighway 4 (CS4) will run along Creek Road, Evelyn Street, Lower Road (which will be subject to a separate consultation next year), Jamaica Road and Tooley Street.
A segregated cycle lane on Tanner Street in Bermondsey would link to Quietway 14, enabling cyclists to follow that route to the North—South Cycle Superhighway at Blackfriars Road.

The launch of the CS4 consultation comes a week after one was opened for Cycle Superhighway 9, running from Brentford to Kensington Olympia.
The mayor said: “I’m delighted to be able to announce plans to bring more than 4 kilometres of segregated cycle lanes to south-east London.
“We need more Londoners to cycle and walk for the good of their health and our air quality, and that’s why we’re working so hard make cycling safer and easier right across the capital.
“By bringing this route to an area of such high demand, this superhighway really will open up cycling to thousands more Londoners,” he added.
